What happened:

this is how Niebla Roja’s year has been going

Último Guerrero feuded with Mistico. UG had Mistico beat after the front superplex, but Rush pulled Tirantes away. Rush simply unmasked Mistico and pinned him anyway. They teased a singles match for next week, which is not happening yet.

Niebla Roja clearly uses the bottom rope to beat Terrible in the second fall of the semimain, though nothing comes of it and it’s probably just a mistake. Luciferno reverse a huracanrana into a Styles Clash for the win the same way in consecutive matches.


slide kick

An easy a Tuesday recommendation as it comes. This wasn’t much deeper than a cool spot move fest but they were really cool. Forastero – and all the NGD – are benefiting a bit from the Nuevo part of their name. They’re fresh, so their sharp moves stand out more than ones seen a hundred times already. I’m not sure if we’ve seen the roll into the sliding one foot kick to face from Forastero before, but I wasn’t expecting it and unexpected wrestling sequences are more interesting to watch. His dives looks cool and he took Cometa’s well. Cometa is getting more charismatic as he gets older; he seems like a guy who’s going to figure out a way to stay entertaining even as his body begins to betray him. The reversal finish here was a nice surprise and I could stand to see these two fight a few more times.
